What Is PRP?
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) has two elements:
● Platelets- This a blood cell type that heals the body
● Plasma- It is the liquid portion of blood
Not only do platelets have clotting abilities, but they also contain growth factors that promote the reproduction of cells while stimulating tissue regeneration in the targeted area. Hence, PRP is the blood with more platelets.

Our certified medical professionals first take a blood sample of the patient, which is then placed in a centrifuge. The centrifuge is a device that spins the blood sample rapidly. This process helps separate the platelets from other blood components. The platelets then get concentrated in the plasma.
